Okay so here's what works best if you experience any crashing:
Install the 1.2 patch before you copy over the Meridian file from the Razor1911 folder into the game's main folder. You can find the 1.2/1.3 patch (though I've had more luck with the 1.2 patch) from the pcgamingwiki website.
R-click the game's shortcut/.exe, go in the compatibility tab. You want to run this game for XP SP3 in conjunction with running it as an administrator, and for extra measure (since it is an older game) disable fullscreen optimisations.
One last thing: while the game is locked at 30 fps, force vsync through external means (ie Nvidia Control Panel) in order to avoid potential crashes.
This combo hasn't given me any crashes so far (30 min run, starting over from my post below).

Hey so the game works great, even has a native 1080p resolution.
It's a lot of fun so far (20 min in) but the game has a tendency to crash at seemingly random intervals. Is this a known issue? It's become incredibly frustrating, and even the old official and new unofficial patches don't solve anything.
I'm playing on a W10 device, and I tried different compatibility modes to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So, I tried to do the miridian thing and copied it simply to my desktop. When I launch it, something ''almost'' works. but the program stops responding.

I found the meridian and copied it, but where am I supposed to paste it? I can't figure that part out

Just made an account here so I'm not really sure wether or not I'm commenting in the right place but I just wanted to say that what @Jibbanerbs suggested in his latest comment worked for me as well. And also @Jibbanerbs, if you're reading this, THANK YOU!

Guys! I figured it out. I'm pretty sure this is the same version from gamePCiso, because someone there had the same issue. Only difference is, they knew how to fix it.
There's a 'Razor1911' folder on disk 1. Inside, you find an application called 'meridian' If you copy it (the application), and paste it into the place where you installed (which has its own 'meridian') you can overwrite it, and the game should run.

Man, I was all hype to play this game. It was one of my old favorites.
Unfortunately, I don't have the computer chops to get around the much hated 'Please insert disk 1"

Also unable to play due to program requesting I insert Disk 1. Hmmm... Will update if I find a way.

All I'm getting after setup is 'Insert Disk 1 to play the game' , even when I launch from a mounted disc image. Installed on HD and SD. Wondered if I could change a setting in .ini, perhaps it was defaulting to Drive D: instead of virtual drive but there's not much of a config file to play with. I'm giving up, but I wish you luck. Any fixes, hope to see them on here.
